Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shah "As director of Dukes sickle cell transition program my practice and research focuses on treating children and adults with sickle cell disease. When I work with children I try to focus on teaching them about their condition and how to transition successfully to living with the disease as an adult. For all patients I focus on providing the medical social and psychological support they need to remain healthy. My research aims to increase engagement of sickle cell patients with their own care using mobile technology. Through the use of applications were hoping to help patients specifically children better manage their symptoms and medications. Outside of work I have a strong interest in art. In fact one of my undergraduate majors was biological illustration. I enjoy drawing plants animals and people. Ive recently started getting back into this hobby."
